The following is said resolution as adopted : 

Whereas, There is now in force and effect an 
Act of Congress known as the Selective Training 
and Service Act of 1940 which authorizes the Presi- 
dent to select and induct into the land and naval 
forces of the United States any qualified male 
person for training and service in the national in- 
terest, for common defense and national security; 
and 

Whereas, Employes of the City are subject to

of said Act of Congress; and 

Whereas, It is provided in and by said Act of 
Congress that in case any person, in order to per- 
form such training and service, has left or leaves 
a position other than a temporary position in the 
employ of any State or political subdivision thereof, 
he shall be restored to such position or to a posi- 
tion of like seniority and status and pay after he 
satisfactorily completes his period of training and 
service, if he is still qualified to perform the duties 
of such position; and 

Whereas, Under existing rules of the Civil 
Service Commission of the City of Chicago leave 
of absence may be granted to any employe by the 
head of a department for one year or longer to 
enable such employe to enter the army or navy of 
the United States and upon expiration of such 
leave of absence and his report to the head of the 
department he may be reinstated in his position

by certification from an eligible register; but such 
employe, by virtue of the provisions of the laws 
of the State of Illinois providing for employes' an- 
nuity funds, will lose the benefit of accumulating 
to his credit in his annuity fund the amount which 
would have been deducted from his salary and the 
amount which would have been contributed by the

Be it Further Resolved, The head of every de- 
partment of the City government be and he hereby 
is directed to save from the annual appropriations 
for salaries for his department an amount equal 
to the deductions from the salaries of employes for 
annuity funds so that every employe on leave of 
absence for training and service in the land or 
naval forces of the United States may secure the 
benefit of accumulating to his credit in his annuity 
fund an amount which he would accumulate by con- 
tinuous service in the City and payment of his 
salary during his period of training and service in 
the land or naval forces of the United States. 

Be it Further Resolved, That the Corporation 
Counsel be and he hereby is directed to prepare

ing, on premises at 5305-07 W. Harrison Street; 
and 

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered July 12, 1940 reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with requirements

and 

Whereas, the proposed use is to be located ia a 
commercial district nearer than 125 ft. to an

letter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this 
application by the Board of Appeals at its regu- 
lar meeting held on September 9, 1940, after due

nal of Commerce on August 24, 1940; and 

Whereas, the use district maps show that the 
premises are located in a commercial district 
nearer than 125 ft. to an apartment district; and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals is authorized 
by law in cases where there are practical diffi- 
culties or particular hardship in the way of carry- 
ing out the strict letter of the zoning ordinance 
to hear and recommend variations of such ordi- 
nance to the City CouncU under rules provided

Whereas, the Board of Appeals further finds 
that the proposed use is to be located in a com- 
mercial district nearer than 125 ft. to an apart- 
ment district in an existing one-story store build- 
ing and that it will be so conducted that the ap- 
propriate use of neighboring property will not

Whereas, under the rules provided in the zon-

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered April 4, 1940 reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with requirements 
of zoning ordinance. ' ; 
and 

Whereas, the proposed improvement is to be 
located in an apartment district and would violate 
the strict letter of the zoning ordinance; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this 
application by the Board of Appeals at its regular 
meeting held on July 22, 1940, after due public 
notice by publication in the Chicago Journal of 
Commerce on June 29, 1940; and 

Whereas, the use district maps show that the 
premises are located in an apartment district ; and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals is authorized 
by law in cases where there are practical diffi- 
culties or particular hardship in the way of carry- 
ing out the strict letter of the zoning odinance 
to hear and recommend variations of such ordi- 
nance to the City Council under rules provided 
in the zoning ordinance ; and 

Whereas, in the rules provided in the zoning

tion 28, paragraph (1) : 

'Granting of permission to devote premises

forming * * * C use, * * * in a block * * * in

use of a similar nature. ' ; 
and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the parties

ises are located and that the applicant should be 
granted relief on the ground of particular hard-

Authorization for the Filing of an Application with 
the Reconstruction Finance Corporation for a 
Loan to Aid in Financing the Construction 
of a Terminal Building at the Municipal 
Airport. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication : 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

November 26, 1940. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — As you are aware, the efficiency of 
our municipal airport has been greatly impaired for 
some time by reason of the fact that operations are 
being conducted through a totally inadequate 
terminal building facility. This inadequacy extends 
not only to the convenient and efficient movement of 
passengers but extends to the handling of cargo as 
well. Now that all difficulties with respect to the 
expansion of the airpoT't to obtain an adequate area 



for aircraft movements have been cleared away, 
Chicago can have the finest commercial airport in 
the country if effective steps are taken to provide a 
modern, adequate and efficient terminal building fa- 
cility. 

With this in mind, I have caused studies to be 
made of the possibilities of obtaining such a term- 
inal building facility without increasing the corpo- 
rate debt of the City. As a result of these studies, 
a plan has been devised whereby a facility of this 
type costing approximately $1,800,000 may be pos- 
sible of financing on a self-liquidating plan. In gen- 
eral, this plan would contemplate the full coopera- 
tion of the airlines now operating in and out of this 
airport, some W. P. A. assistance and the balance 
financed through a self-liquidating R. F. C. loan 
to be amortized out of additional revenues which 
would be generated by this new facility itself. 

I have approached the Federal Loan Agency 
(R. F. C.) in a preliminary way regarding the 
eligibility of such a loan and they have expressed 
great interest in the enterprise. Therefore, it is 
suggested that you authorize me to develop this plan 
further and to make formal application on behalf 
of the City of Chicago to the Reconstruction Fi- 
nance Corporation for a loan of approximately 
$1,000,000 for the purpose above stated, to be 
amortized out of air terminal revenues and with- 
out in any way burdening the corporate debt of the 
City. 

It is understood, of course, that this authority 
would be for the purpose of negotiating the terms 
of the agreement only and that no final action on 
behalf of the City be taken until the matter has 
been fully considered and acted upon by the City 
Council. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 

By unanimous consent, Alderman Grealis there- 
upon presented the following ordinance: 

An Ordinance 
Authorizing the City of Chicago to file an ap- 
plication with Reconstruction Finance Corpora- 
tion for a loan to aid in financing the construction 
of a terminal building at the Chicago Municipal 
Airport and designating the Mayor of the City of 
Chicago to furnish such information as Recon- 
struction Finance Corporation may request. 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Section 1. That the Mayor of the City of Chi- 
cago be and he is authorized to execute and file an 
application on behalf of the City of Chicago with 
Reconstruction Finance Corporation for a loan to 
aid in financing the construction of a terminal 
building at Chicago Municipal Airport. 

Section 2. That the Mayor of the City of Chi- 
cago be and he is hereby authorized and directed 
to furnish such information as Reconstruction 
Finance Corporation may reasonably request in 
connection with the application which is herein 
authorized to be filed. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said ordinance without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Grealis moved to pass the ordinance.

Grant of $5,130,000 to Aid in Financing the Con-

tem of Subways for Local Transporta- 
tion Purposes. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was ordered published 
and placed on file : 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

November 26, 1940. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — It gives me pleasure to announce 
that pursuant to applications filed by me under au- 
thority of the City Council, the Acting Commis- 
sioner of Public Works, Federal Works Agency, has 
made a tender to the City of Chicago of an increase 
of $5,130,000 in the Grant in aid of construction 
of the Initial System of Subways (Docket No. 111. 
1891-F). 

If accepted by the City under the terms and con- 
ditions of the offer, the maximum amount which the 
City may earn in the way of Grant is increased from 
$18,000,000 to $23,130,000. 

In general, the major conditions of the offer are : 

That the City will agree to extend the Dear- 
born Street Subway south to Congress Street and 
westerly along the line of Congress Street to a 
"turn-back" loop just east of the South Branch 
of the Chicago River near S. Franklin Street; 

That the City will agree to reimburse the Gov- 
ernment for the expenses of inspection and audit- 
ing incurred by the Government after Decem- 
ber 27, 1940; 

(The offer extends the time for completion of 
the Project to June 30, 1941) ; 

Providing the City will take such legal and 
engineering steps as are necessary to provide for 
the construction of physical connections other 
than those included in the Project between the 
subway system and other parts of the transpor- 
tation system; and 

Providing that the City, when sufficient funds 
therefor become available, will construct (a) an 
extension of the subway from the south terminus 
near Franklin and Congress Streets west to a 
connection with the Metropolitan Elevated Rail- 
road west of Halsted Street, (b) an extension 
of the subway westward along the general line 
of W. Lake Street from N. Canal Street to a con- 
nection with the Lake Street Elevated Railroad 
at a point west of Halsted Street, and (c) will 



provide for the removal or demolition as soon 
after the construction of such extensions and con- 
nections as is reasonably practicable, of the ele- 
vated railroad structures in Lake Street and Wa- 
bash Avenue in the section of the city known as 
the Loop. 

In order to accept this additional Grant, it is 
necessary for the City Council to authorize the exe- 
cution of an Amendatory Grant Agreement, which 
I understand will be submitted to the Council today. 
Inasmuch as this additional Grant involves no ad- 
ditional financial commitment on the part of the 
City other than those already authorized by pre- 
vious action of the City Council, it is suggested that 
you give the acceptance of this Grant your most 
earnest and prompt consideration. 

Yours truly, 

(Signed) Edwajrd J. Kelly, 

MoAjor.

Chicago : 

Re: Ex-Cell-0 Corporation, a Corp. 
— vs — 
City of Chicago, et al. 

American Can Company, a Corp. 
— vs — 
City of Chicago, et al. 

Gentlemen — "We are pleased to report that by 
its decision announced November 14, 1940 the 
United States Circuit Court of Appeals has affirmed 
the action of his Honor Phillip L. Sullivan, one of 
the judges of the United States District Court, in 
dismissing the above entitled cases. 

The plaintiff, Ex-Cell-0 Corporation is a manu- 
facturer of patented machines for the production 
of paper milk bottles. It licenses certain milk dis- 
tributors in Chicago to make and sell such bottles 
and collects license fees therefor. The plaintiff, 
American Can Company is a manufacturer of sim- 
ilar bottles which it sells for profit to dairy com- 
panies in Chicago. The plaintiffs are not engaged 
in the distribution of milk. 

In each complaint, plaintiff sought to obtain a 
declaratory judgment that the milk ordinance of 
the City of Chicago does not prohibit the use of 
paper milk containers, or if it does, that it is in- 
valid. 

The court held that neither plaintiff had any such 
direct interest in the purpose of the suits as to en- 
able it to maintain the action. 

A copy of the court's opinion is fonvarded here- 
with.

Proposed 

Approval and Authorization of the Award of a Con- 
tract to The Dur-ite Company for Waterproofing 
Subway Structures, and Approval of Said 
Contract. 

The Committee on Finance submitted the follow- 
ing report, which was, on motion of Alderman Arvey, 
deferred and ordered published : 

Chicago, November 25, 1940. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration a communication from the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Superhighways in the mat- 
ter of a contract with The Dur-ite Company, for 
waterproofing subway structures, beg leave to report 
and submit the accompanying order without rec- 
ommendation : 

Having received and considered the letter of 
November 20, 1940 from the commissioner of sub- 
ways and superhighways stating that under au- 
thority of the subway ordinance passed by the city 
council on November 3, 1938 and approved by the 
Mayor, bids entitled "Proposal for A^'aterproofino: 
of Subway Structures" were advertised for receipt 
at 2:00 o'clock P. M. Central Standard Time on 
Thursday November 7, 1940; that advertisements 
for receipt of the bids were placed in the Chicago 
Journal of Commerce in five issues of October 15, 
16, 17, 18 and 19, 1940; that the work under con- 
tract for waterproofing subway structures covers 
both the State Street and Dearborn Street Routes 
of the Initial System of Subways and consists of 
drilling holes, grouting, placing of grout, the cut- 
ting and placing of joint seals and the furnishing 
of other miscellaneous materials and labor neces- 
sary for stopping and preventing leaks in the tubes, 
mezzanine stations and passageways comprising the 
subway system; that in order to economize in the

construction of the subway system no particular 
provisions were made for the inclusion of water- 
proofing work in the various contracts for con- 
struction; that had this been done it would have 
been necessary to include provisions against leak- 
age continuously throughout the length of the work, 
thus involving expenditures at points where no 
leakage has occurred; that the clay overlying the 
subway in most instances is impervious and with 
the excellent character of concrete structures which 
have been built an effective seal against infiltration 
of water is provided by ordinary methods without 
expenditure of funds especially for waterproofing; 
that under the proposed contract for waterproofing, 
expenditures shall be made only at the relatively 
few points where leakage has occurred or where 
construction joints have opened up due to contrac- 
tion of the concrete upon cooling; that if water- 
proofing provisions had been made throughout all 
contracts the cost would have run many times the 
cost of providing only that waterproofing which is 
found to be necessary; that this proposed water- 
proofing contract will therefore result in a sub- 
stantial saving to the City; that on November 7, 
1940 bids on this contract were received and 
opened by the commissioner as follows: 

The Dur-ite Company, Chicago $ 64,175.00 

Kedmont Manufacturing & Water- 
proofing Co., Chicago $ 89,575.00 

N. S. Mackie Company, Chicago $121,125.00 

Lewis & McDowell, Inc., New York $128,525.00 

Joseph J. Duffy, Chicago $185,203.00 

Chris Pasehen Waterproofing Co., 

Chicago $238,704.00; 

that the low bidder is the Dur-ite Company, of 
Chicago; that this firm has been actively engaged 
in waterproofing work since its organization about 
six years ago; that it is under the active manage- 
ment of Mr. Louis S. Wertz; who has spent a great 
many years as a specialist in waterproofing; that an 
examination of the records indicates that Mr. Wertz 
and The Dur-ite Company have performed quite 
extensive waterproofing work on tunnels, build- 
ings, reservoirs, and other public works and have 
a satisfactory record; that from information fur- 
nished it appears that this firm is financially qual- 
ified to carry out the work; that in addition the 
City will be protected by a performance bond in 
the amount of 100% of the total estimated con- 
tract price; and requesting that the city council 
approve entering into said contract on behalf of the 
City of Chicago after due notice of such award has 
been served upon the low bidder by the commis- 
sioner, it is hereby 

Ordered, That the city council hereby approves 
and authorizes the award of the contract for water- 
proofing subway structures of the State Street and 
Dearborn Street Subways to the lowest responsible 
bidder The Dur-ite Company, of Chicago, Illinois, 
for the unit prices specified in its bid aggregating 
at the estimated quantities the sum of $64,175.00; 
and said contract, a copy of which has been sub- 
mitted, is approved and it is ordered that same be 
filed with the city clerk for identification and 
reference.

Submission of a Report as to the Progress of Con-

(Contract S-3). 

The Committee on Finance submitted the follow- 
ing report : 

Chicago, November 26, 1940. 

To the President and Members of the City Council: 

Your- Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration a communication dated November 18, 
1940, from the Commissioner of Subways and 
Superhighways in the matter of a contract for the 
construction of the State Street Subway (Contract 
S-3), beg leave to report and recommend that said 
communication be published and placed on file. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) J. M. Arvey, 

Chairman. 

Alderman Arvey moved to concur in said report. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon to the next regular meeting. 

The question being put, the motion prevailed. 

The following is the communication submitted with 
the foregoing committee report: 

City of Chicago 
Department op Subways and Superhighways 

November 18, 1940. 
To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In order that your committee and 
the City Council may be fully advised as to the 
progress being made on the construction of the 
Initial System of Subways, I wish to report as 
follows : 

The contract for the construction of the State 
Street Subway, Contract S-3, was awarded to the 
Healy Subway Construction Corporation on Sep- 
tember 18, 1939. The specifications provide that 
the contract shall be substantially completed within 
450 days. This fixes the date of completion of this 
section as of December 10, 1940. Based on the 
present rate of progress and the present status of 
the work, we now estimate that the work will be 
completed approximately on February 1, 1941, 52 
days later than the time specified in the contract. 

The contract provides that if the contractor does 
not meet the requirements as to time, progress and 
final completion within the date specified in the 
contract, the City may declare this contract for- 
feited. However, the interest of the City, in our 
opinion, is best served by allowing the contractor, 
Healy Subway Construction Corporation, upon the 
consent of his surety, to continue and complete 
the contract for the construction of the State Street 
Subway, Contract S-3, even though there be a tech- 
nical default as to time of completion. It should 
be noted that the contractor has prosecuted his work 
diligently and that the nature of the work on this 
contract required an extremely careful procedure 
under some of the most adverse conditions encoun- 
tered during the construction of the Initial Sys- 
tem of Subways. 



November 26, 1940 

As the work progresses on other contracts on the 
subway, similar information will be presented to 
your Committee as the occasion arises. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways.

Whereas, Unless additional monies are found, 
the relief stations will then have to close and the 
200,000 people in Chicago now dependent on public 
relief will starve and an even greater number of 
persons will suffer downstate; and 

Whereas, It is unthinkable in a civilized com- 
munity that we should shut off protection from the 
destitute; and 

Whereas, We agree with the President of the 
United States that the ' ' total defense of our shores, 
our homes, our institutions cannot be complete un- 
til all Americans willing and able to work have a 
job and a decent standard of living and that all 
unable to work through no fault of their own, have 
security," now therefore be it 

Resolved, That the Mayor of Chicago be re- 
quested to hold conferences with the Governor and 
Governor-elect of Illinois to work out plans where- 
by additional state funds may be made available 
early in January, and that the city itself should 
take steps to make its own contribution available 
as early in January as possible so as to bridge any 
gap created by possible legislative delays. 
Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee.

The motion prevailed. 



Request to Persons Concerned with Traction Nego- 
tiations, Etc., to Make Personal Use of the 
Transportation Facilities Involved. 

Alderman Douglas presented the following resolu- 
tion : 

Whereas, One of the difficulties in dealing .justly 
with the traction problem is the fact that those who 
officially represent both private and public interests 
in this matter seldom use the surface, elevated or 
bus lines and thus do not know at first hand the 
serious inconveniences and delays which the vast 
majority of Chicagoans suffer who are dependent 
upon these means of transportation; and 



November 26, 1940 



NEW BUSINESS— BY WARDS 



3529 



Whereas, Since thei'e is no substitute for prac- 
tical experience to make vivid and clear the plight 
of Chicago's population in trying to get to and 
from work; and 

Whereas, Such first hand experience should lead 
to a greater protection of the interests of the pub- 
lic; now therefore 

Be It Resolved, That we ask all members of the 
City Council and all City Officials who have any 
dealings with the traction issue, to travel pre- 
dominantly on surface, elevated and bus lines dur- 
ing the period the traction ordinance is under dis- 
cussion and either until an ordinance is passed 
or during the next three months; and 

Be It Resolved, That we ask all financial, legal 
and administrative representatives of these lines 
and representatives of all groups of stockholders 
and bondholders to do likewise during such a 
period. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Alderman Douglas moved to adopt the resolution.

quest that this Honorable Body accept the same. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Roger J. Kiley, 

Alderman 37th Ward. 

Extension of Best Wishes to Judge-Elect 
Roger J. Kiley. 

By unanimous consent Alderman Arvey thereupon 
presented the following resolution : 

Whereas, The Honorable Roger J. Kiley, Alder- 
man of the Thirty-seventh Ward, has been meritori- 
ously honored with election as Judge of the Supe- 
rior Court of Cook County ; and 

Whereas, The elevation of our distinguished col- 
league to the bench means that he will shortly end 
his'seJvice as a member of the City Council; and 

Whereas, As a member of this body Alderman 
Kiley, by his fine character, his leadership ability, 
and his devotion to the duties of alderman, endeared 
himself to and had always the high respect of his 
colleagues in the City Council ; and 

Whereas, The service of Alderman Kiley in this 
body was of such a splendid nature as to cause the 
non-partisan Municipal Voters League of Chicago 
to comment after he had finished his first term in 
1935, as follows: 

"Aid. Roger J. Kiley. Finishing first term 
with good record. Able, alert and aggressive. 
Has displayed a keen interest and ambition in 
his work and a capacity for clear thinking and 
effective action. Has leadership qualities."; 

and to cause a newspaper in his home district, the 
Austinite, to justifiably comment on April 17, 1940, 
that Alderman KUey 

"has made an impressive record during his term 
as alderman, both in respect to improvements 
brought to his ward and in service to the city as 
a whole through council activities. He is gener- 
ally regarded as one of the ablest of the city 
council's members."; and 

Whereas, We, the members of the City Council, 
are mindful that, although Alderman Kiley will 
continue to serve our community in his new capac- 
ity as a member of the Superior Court of Cook 
County, we in this body will miss his good counsel 
and judgment; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the City 
Council of Chicago herewith officially expresses to 
Alderman Kiley the sense of regret that this body 
feels because he now is to sever his connections with 
the City Council; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the City Council 
of Chicago herewith expresses to Alderman Kiley 
its most cordial best wishes to him in his career 
as a member of the judiciary of Cook County, and 
also the confidence of his colleagues, supported by 
their close association with him, that he will reflect 
credit on the bench of Cook County just as he has 
reflected credit upon this body; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That this resolution be 
entered in the permanent records of the City Coun- 
cil as a token of the esteem in which Alderman 
Kiley is held by his colleagues, and also that a 
copy of this resolution, suitably engrossed and 
signed by his Honor the Mayor, by the President 



Pro Tern, of the City Council, and by the City 
Clerk of Chicago, be presented to Alderman Kiley 
as a token of the sentiments expressed in this reso- 
lution. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on 
said resolution without reference thereof to a com- 
mittee. 

Aldermen Arvey, McDermott, Kells, Lindell, Olin, 
Grealis, O'Hallaren, Quinn, Dickerson, Gillespie, Cul- 
lerton, Upton, Rowan, Boyle, Cowhey, Murphy, 
Keenan, Douglas and Ross thereupon addressed the 
Council, felicitating Alderman Kiley upon his ad- 
vancement, but at the same time expressly regret at 
his leaving the Council, and paying high tribute to his 
character, talents and public service. Honorable Ed- 
ward J. Kelly, Mayor, added his expressions of regret 
and congratulation and praise to those of the Alder- 
men. 

Alderman Arvey moved to adopt the resolution. 
Seconded by Alderman McDermott. 

The motion prevailed unanimously by a rising vote.

Hon Edward J Kelly, Mayor

Dear Mr. Mayor: Impossible to secure reserva- 
tions so I could attend meeting today. I fully 
realize the great loss Alderman Kiley 's withdrawal 
will be to the Council. The absence of his services 
as Vice Chairman of Finance and his interest in 
relief and housing and all major problems pending 
before City Council will cause a gap that cannot 
be filled. Please extend to Alderman Roger Kiley 
my best wishes for his future success.

To the Mayor and the Members of the City Council: 

My Dear Friends — It was impossible for me at 
last Tuesday's meeting to respond to the many 
very generous and friendly goodbyes following ac- 
ceptance of my resignation. 

The years since 1933 which I have spent in the 
City Council will always be, I know, among my 
happiest memories. No man has ever had better 
friends than I in the City Hall; no man ever re- 
ceived more consideration or finer understanding 
than I, especially the last few years; and no man 
appreciates all of these more than I have and do 
now. 

My good fortune which takes me to the Superior 
Court Bench is flavored with my regret at leaving 
you. May all of you enjoy health and success. 
Sincerely, 

(Signed) . Roger J. Kiley.

Proclamations of the Mayor. 

The City Clerk presented the following proclama- 
tions of Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, which 
were ordered published and placed on file : 

Suggestion to Unregistered Aliens to Register Imme- 
diately under the Alien Registration Act. 

City of Chicago 
Office of thB Mayor 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the Alien Registration Division of the 
United States Department of Justice has requested 
the further co-operation of the United States Con- 
ference of Mayors in bringing, its registration pro- 
gram to a successful close; and 

Whereas, the Alien Registration Act of 1940 re- 
quires that all aliens, male and female, minor and 
adult, must register on or before December 26, 1940 ; 
and 

Whereas, satisfactory registration results expe- 
rienced so far indicate that the vast majority of 
non-citizens in this country understand that this is 
a national defense measure and are eager to show 
their loyalty as Americans. 

Now, therefore, as Mayor of the City of Chicago, 
I call special attention to the fact that the time limit 
for registration is rapidly drawing to a close. The 
Chicago Post Office will soon be at the height of its 
Christmas rush and the non-citizens who register 
now can save themselves a great deal of inconven- 
ience. I therefore earnestly urge all people in Chi- 
cago coming under the Alien Registration Act to 
present themselves at the Post Office Building at 
once to demonstrate their spirit of loyalty to Amer- 
ica and its ideals. 

Dated this 26th day of November, 1940. 

(Signed) Edvstard J. KblIiY, 

Mayor. 

Request for Participation in the Nationwide Safety 
Campaign of the National Safety Council. 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the National Safety Council, supported 
by 30 other national organizations, is conducting a 
nationwide campaign to reduce the heavy December 
traffic toll ; and 

Whereas, the needless loss of human lives on 
America's streets and highways usually reaches a 
peak in December, when bad weather and more 
hours of darkness combine with the hurry and ex- 
citement of the holiday season to transform Christ- 
mas joy into tragedy and suffering. 

Now, therefore, as Mayor of Chicago, knowing 
that every resident of our city is eager to join a 
campaign to prevent death and suffering, I call 
upon every citizen to join this drive and, through 
added caution in driving and walking, to make this 
■Christmas truly a happy one. 

Dated this 30th day of November, A. D. 1940. 



Designation of December 23, 1940 as "Movie Christ- 
mas Basket Party Day". 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

A Proclamation 

Whereas, the motion picture industry of Chicago, 
being desirous of performing a beneficial service 
to Chicago's needy people at Christmastime, is spon- 
soring movie Christmas basket parties, and is con- 
ducting special morning shows in the neighborhood 
motion picture theaters in Chicago on Monday, De- 
cember 23, 1940, the sole price of admission being 
a donation of non-perishable food-stuff in any size 
or quantity; and 

Whereas, from this vast accumulation of food- 
stuffs special baskets will be prepared and distrib- 
uted to needy and destitute persons of our city ; and 

Whereas, this laudable gesture on the part of the 
local motion picture industry will result in provid- 
ing a large number of our worthy poor with Christ- 
mas cheer. 

Now, therefore, as Mayor of Chicago, I do hereby 
proclaim Monday, December 23, 1940, to be Movie 
Christmas Basket Party Day in Chicago and urge 
our citizens to assist, to the greatest possible extent, 
in this praiseworthy charitable undertaking. 

Signed this second day of December, A. D. 1940. 

(Signed) , Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor. 



Designation of the Period March 30-April 5, 1941 as 
"Chicago Public Library Week". 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

A Proclamation 

Whereas, some of the most important advances in 
civilization have been made possible through the 
printed word by which education has been carried 
down from generation to generation ; and 

Whereas, one of the great blessings to our people 
has been the establishment of libraries where old 
and new literary treasures and publications of al- 
most every kind are made available for the free 
use of our citizens; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Public Library and its 
branches make up one of the greatest library sys- 
tems in the world, and it is fitting that we pause 
occasionally to pay tribute, not only to those en- 
gaged in the Public Library service but also to those 
- whose lives are devoted to the maintenance and op- 
eration of private and semi-private libraries whose 
doors are open to the public. 

Now, therefore, I hereby declare the period of 
March 30 to April 5, 1941, to be Chicago Public 
Library Week, and I urge that our citizens, so far 
as possible, participate in any ceremonies arranged 
for the occasion and generally to join in this move- 
ment to honor all those in the library service. 

Signed this 30th day of November, A. D. 1940.

JOUENAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



December 3, 1940 



Report of State Approval of an M. F. T. Project 
(Improvement of the West Route of the Com- 
prehensive Superhighway System). 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was ordered published and placed on file: 

State of Illinois 
Department op Public Works and Buildings 
Division of Highways 
Springfield 

November 28, 1940. 

Mr. Ludwig D. Schreiher, City Clerk, Boom 107, 
City Hall, Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Sir— On October 31, 1940, the City Council 
of Chicago passed an ordinance for the improve- 
ment, under the Motor Fuel Tax Act, of ' ' The West 
Route of the Comprehensive Superhighway Sys- 
tem," and appropriated $2,000,000.00 to cover the 
cost of construction of the section between South 
State Street and South Western Avenue, and $200,- 
000.00 to cover a portion of the cost of all other 
work involved, including engineering, legal and ap- 
praisal service. The above amounts were appro- 
priated out of Motor Fuel Tax funds allotted, or to 
be allotted, to the City of Chicago. 

This is to advise that this ordinance was approved 
today. 

The ordinance describes in some detail the exact 
location of this route and contains certain plans 
and drawings dated October 31, 1940, which show 
alignment, cross sections, connections, etc. This is 
to advise that these features are only approved in a 
general way as it may be necessary to make minor 
changes from these drawings and descriptions, as 
circumstances require. 

It is noted from the plans attached to the ordi- 
nance that it is proposed to leave the existing ele- 
vated structure in place in a parkway between the 
two express roadways at some locations. This De- 
partment feels that this elevated structure, in this 
position, is very undesirable and that the railroad 
should be removed entirely, or the tracks depressed 
in their present location. Approval of this ordi- 
nance is based on further consideration of this fea- 
ture, when plans are submitted for approval. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) Ernst Lieberman, 

Chief Highwajy Engineer.

Proposed 

Recommendation for Creation of a Definitely Organ-

Collect Delinquent Taxes. 

The Committee on Finance submitted the follow- 
ing report, which was, on motion of Alderman Kells, 
deferred and ordered published: 

Chicago, December 3, 1940. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration the matter of collecting delinquent 
real estate and personal property taxes, beg leave 
to report and recommend the adoption of the fol- 
lowing resolution : 

Whereas, the Finance Committee of the City 
Council is concerned with the finaneing of the pub- 
lic services of the City of Chicago. In connection 
therewith, it has held a series of preliminary hear- 
ings on its budget for the coming year, designed 
to secure the views of citizens and of civic organi- 
zations in the premises. In one of these hearings, 
the attention of the Committee was called to the 
request of the County Treasurer to the Circuit 
Court Judges Committee on Employment and to 
the Board of Cook County Commissioners with re- 
spect to the establishment in the office of the 
County Treasurer, of a definitely organized unit 
to collect delinquent taxes. In support of this 
proposal, the Committee has heard from represen- 
tatives of the Chicago Association of Commerce, 
which, through its Special Committee on Delin- 
quent Taxes, has been studying this matter for 
several years in association with the County Treas- 
urer and other public offices concerned. The gen- 
eral problem of delinquent taxes has been studied 
also by a Special Committee of the City Council, 
of which Alderman Frank Keenan is chairman. 
Both the Association of Commerce Committee and 
the City Council Committee have frequently ex- 
changed views in the effort to develop understand- 
ing of the problem and suggestions for its solution. 
Both committees have made recommendations 
which have much in common. Both committees 
agree that there should be a definitely organized 
effort based upon adequate records, with a posi- 
tive collecting effort resulting in bringing each de- 
linquent account to critical attention and action. 
Such action would l^e calculated to result in the 
maximum of collection where collection is possible 
and in the liquidation of the remaining accounts 
according to some orderly uniform and reasonable 
plan. 

From an examination of the County Treasurer's 
proposal and of the presentation of the Associa- 
tion of Commerce committee in support of it and 
in view of the general concurrence of Alderman 
Keenan 's committee with respect to the validity 
and promise of the proposed effort, the Finance 
Committee of the Chicago City Council has ex- 
pressed itself as approving, in principle, the pro- 
posal of the County Treasurer of Cook County and 
as recommending its favorable consideration by the 
Circuit Court Judges' Committee on Employment 
and by the Board of Cook County Commissioners. 
The Committee, on Finance, however, feels that this 
effort should be made to include the collection of 
personal property taxes, of which there are many 
millions now delinquent. 

Therefore, he it Resolved by the City Council 
that it hereby registers its approval in principle

tion of the plan for the collection of delinquent

Submission of a Report as to the Progress of Con- 
struction Work on the Dearborn Street Subway 
(Contract D-6E). 

The Committee on Finance submitted the follow- 
ing report: 

Chicago, December 3, 1940. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration a report of progress from the De- 
partment of Subways and Superhighways on con- 
tract D-6E, Dearborn Street Subway, beg leave to 
report and recommend that said report be pub- 
lished and placed on file. 

This recommendation was concurred in by eleven 
members of the committee, with no dissenting votes. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) J. M. Aevey, 

Chairman. 

Alderman Kells moved to concur in said report. 
No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon to the next regular meeting. 

The question being put, the motion prevailed. 
The following is the communication submitted with 
the foregoing committee report: 

City op Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

November 30, 1940. 
To the Honorable, the Chairman and 
Members of the Committee on Finance 
of the City Council, City of Chicago. 

Gentlemen — In order that your committee and 
the City Council may be fully advised as to the 
progress being made on the construction of the 
Initial System of Subways, I wish to report as 
follows : 

The contract for Dearborn Street Subway, Con- 
tract D-6E, was awarded to M. J. Boyle & Com- 
pany on June 10, 1940. The specifications provide 
that the contract shall be substantially completed 
within 200 days. This fixes the date of completion 
of this section as of December 26, 1940. Based 
upon the present rate of progress and the present 
status of the work, we now estimate that the work 
will be substantially completed approximately 
March 31, 1941, or approximately 95 days later 
than the date specified in the contract. 

The contract provides that extensions of time 
shall be granted to the contractor for unavoidable 
delays due to a variety of causes enumerated in 
the contract provided that such delays are entirely 
beyond the control of the contractor. On Septem- 
ber 12, 1940, the contractor, M. J. Boyle & Co., 
claimed an extension of time due to delays from 
various causes. At the present time the claimed 
extension amounts to 65 days. It is being held for 
review until all such claims have been presented 
by the contractor. 



The contract further provides that if the con- 
tractor does not meet the requirements as to time, 
progress and final completion within the date speci- 
fied in the contract, the City may declare this eon- 
tract forfeited. It appears, however, that the con- 
tractor may have some justification for an exten- 
sion of time due to the claimed delay. The interest 
of the City, in our opinion, is best served by al- 
lowing the contractor, M. J. Boyle & Co., upon 
consent of his surety, to continue and complete the 
contract for section D-6E even though there be a 
technical default as to time of completion. It 
should be noted that the contractor has prosecuted 
his work diligently, the failure to complete on time 
being due, in our opinion to a variety of causes, 
for some of which the contractor may be entitled 
to an extension of time. 

As the work progresses on other contracts on 
the subway, similar information will be presented 
to your Committee as occasion arises. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways. 



Submission of a Report as to the Progress of Con- 
struction Work on the State Street Subway 
(Contract S-IA).

To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Finance, having had under

and placed on file. 

This recommendation was concurred in by eleven 
members of the committee, with no dissenting votes.

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

November 30, 1940. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and 
Members of the Committee on Finance 
of the City Council, City of Chicago. 

Gentlemen — In order that your Committee and 
the City Council may be fully advised as to the 
progress being made on the construction of the 
Initial System of Subways, I wish to report as 
follows : 

The contract for the construction of the State 
Street Subway, Contract S-IA was awarded to the 
Paschen Contractors, Inc. on June 10, 1940. The 
specifications provide that the contract shall be 
substantially completed within 200 days. This 
fixes the date of completion of this section as of 
December 26, 1940. Based on the present rate of 



December 3, 1940

progress and the present status of the work, we 
now estimate that the work will be substantially 
completed approximately on April 30, 1941 — 126 
days later than the time specified in the contract. 

The contract provides that if the contractor does 
not meet the requirements as to time, progress and 
final completion within the date specified in the 
contract, the City may declare this contract for- 
feited. However, the interest of the City, in our 
opinion, is best served by allowing the contractor, 
Paschen Contractors, Inc., upon the consent of his 
surety, to continue and complete the contract for 
the construction of the State Street Subway, Con- 
tract S-IA, even though there be a technical de- 
fault as to time of completion. It should be noted 
that the contractor has prosecuted his work dili- 
gently and that the work is proceeding in a sys- 
tematic manner. 

As the work progresses on other contracts on 
the Subway, similar information will be presented 
to your Committee as the occasion arises.

Chicago, December 3, 1940. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Finance, having had under 
consideration a report of progress from the De- 
partment of Subways and Superhighways on con- 
tract S-lOA, State Street Subway, beg leave to 
report and recommend that said report be pub- 
lished and placed on file.

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) J. M. Arvey, 

Chairman. 

Alderman KeUs moved to concur in said report. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer consideration of said report for final action 
thereon to the next regular meeting. 

The question being put, the motion prevailed. 

The following is the comjnunication submitted with 
the foregoing committee report : 

City of Chicago 

Department op Subways and Superhighways 

November 30, 1940. 
To the Honorable, the Chairman and 
Members of the Committee on Finance 
of the City Council, City of Chicago. 

Gentlemen — In order that your committee and 
the City Council may be fully advised as to the 
progress being made on the construction of the 
Initial System of Subways, I wish to report as 
follows : 

The contract for the State Street Subway, Con- 
tract S-lOA, was awarded to A. J. Forschner Con- 
struction Company. Since that portion of Contract 
S-3, affecting Contract S-lOA, was under an air 
pressure above atmospheric, the contractor, A. J. 



Forschner Construction Company, was permitted 
to start only on certain structures, designated by 
the engineers, on July 1, 1940. Then on Septem- 
ber 5, 1940, this contractor was ordered to start on 
the remainder of the structure on Contract S-IOA. 
The specifications provide that the contract shall be 
substantially completed within 180 days after of- 
ficial starting date. Since the greater part of the 
work could not be started until September 5, 1940, 
the completion date computed from then would be 
March 3, 1941. If the starting date were computed 
from July 1, 1940, when the contract went into ef- 
fect, the completion date would be December 27, 
1940. Based on the present rate of progress and 
the present status of work, we now estimate that 
the work will be substantially completed approxi- 
mately on March 1, 1941. 

At this time, however, we are asking the Con- 
tractor to obtain consent from his surety to con- 
tinue all obligations, since completion on part of 
his work may be called for on December 27, even 
though additional time is required on the balance 
of the work. On September 12, 1940, the con- 
tractor, A. J. Forschner Construction Company, 
requested an extension of time on the basis of the 
above-mentioned conditions. The interest of the 
City, in our opinion, is best served by allowing this 
company, upon the consent of its surety, to con- 
tinue and complete the contract for Section S-lOA, 
even though the time is exceeded for completion of 
part of said contract. It should be noted that the 
contractor has prosecuted his work diligently and 
is proceeding in a systematic manner. 

As the work progresses on the other contracts 
of the subway, similar information will be pre- 
sented to your Committee as the occasion arises. 
Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways. 



In the Matter of the Licensing of Itinerant Merchants 
or Transient Vendors of Merchandise. 

The Committee on Finance submitted the follow- 
ing report: 

Chicago, December 3, 1940. 

To the President and Members of the City Council:

f erred (November 26, 1940, page 3543) an ordi- 
nance to license itinerant merchants or transient 
vendors of merchandise, having had the same under

that said ordinance be referred to the Committee 
on License. 

This recommendation was concurred in by eleven 
members of the committee, with no dissenting votes.

CONSOLIDATION, REORGANIZATION AND 
TAXATION. 



Progress Report on a Study of the Problem of Col- 
lecting Delinquent Taxes. 

The Committee on Consolidation, Reorganization 
and Taxation, submitted the following report, which 
was, on motion of Alderman Keenan, deferred and 
ordered published : 

Chicago, December 3, 1940. 

To the President and 31 embers of the City Council: 

Your Committee on Consolidation, Reorganiza- 
tion and Taxation, to whom was referred (April 
26, 1939, page 144), a resolution for a study of the 
problem of collecting delinquent taxes, having had 
the same under advisement, beg leave to submit the 
accompanying progress report. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Frank Keenan, 

Chairman. 

The following is the progress report referred to in 
the foregoing committee report : 

Report of 

The Committee on Consolidation, Reorganiza- 
tion AND Taxation as of October 31, 1940 

The City Council Committee on Consolidation, 
Reorganization and Taxation, pursuing its study 
on tax delinquency, herewith submits a report on 
this very serious situation, as of October 31, 1940. 



The object of our study has been to determine, 
if possible, the reasons for the non-payment of col- 
lectible taxes, both Real and Personal, and to find 
means and methods for the collection of same. 
We have investigated tax assessments, appeals, and 
methods of collection both before and after penalty 
dates. W© have surveyed systems used by other 
Tax Collection Agencies in various counties in 
many States. We have consulted with every au- 
thority in the City and State who professed to have 
any ideas on this subject. We have listened to and 
corresponded with every person who has shown any 
interest in this matter. 

After a study of many months and after ana- 
lyzing all figures which were made available to us, 
we reached the following conclusions as set forth 
in reports previously presented. 

The time-honored method of receiving payment 
of taxes is still used in Cook County. Collection 
methods have been used only to a minor extent. 

Real Estate has produced almost as much tax 
revenue as anticipated. The amount uncollected for 
the eleven-year period, 1928-1938, in Real Estate 
Taxes was only 8.47%, while for Personal Prop- 
erty during the same period, the uncollected total 
was 42.56%. 

The total shown of approximately $400,000,000 in 
delinquency is not a true picture of the situation. 
Some of this total has been cut by Court Procedure 
and the Board of Appeals. In this figure there 
are Personal Property items amounting to millions 
of dollars which never were and never will be col- 
lectible. These items should be, by Court Action, 
stricken from the books of the County Collector. 

Almost 90% of the delinquent tax money is owing 
to the City of Chicago and its affiliated governmen- 
tal bodies. We believe that in this circumstance 
the responsible City Officials should be consulted 
and should have a great deal to say about the en- 
forcement of collection. 



Under the present law, the County of Cook re- 
tains all interest and penalties on delinquencies 
as well as a fee for collection. We have recom- 
mended that Legislation be enacted allocating to all 
Taxing Bodies their proportionate share of the pen- 
alties and interest. 



We suggested the establishment of a Tax En- 
forcement Bureau, properly staffed and financed, 
for the collection of delinquencies, both Real and 
Personal. 

This Committee insisted that the State Tax Com- 
mission use the same equalization factor as the As- 
sessor of Cook County. 



A request was made to the Board of Cook County 
Commissioners to provide a bond for the Sheriff 
and County Treasurer so that levies could be made 
on large Personal Property Tax Warrants or Judg- 
ments.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



3595 



A prograiQ of publicity was suggested to keep the 
public informed as to the true tax situation. 



In our report of October 17, 1939 we presented 
a list of thirty-seven items, chosen at random, of 
large ' ' Loop ' ' properties that owed several millions 
of dollars which were collectible. 



We made the point that the County does not 
have to file law suits to collect Personal Property 
taxes. County Collector's Warrants are sufficient. 



After hearing manj suggestions, the Committee 
decided that in its opinion that there is enough 
Legislation now on the Statute Books to enforce 
payment of all collectible items. 



We have not overlooked the fact that there has 
been a consistent refusal on the part of a large sec- 
tion of the public to pay ANY Personal Property 
Tax. 

Real Estate 

As previously set forth, the percentage of uncol- 
lected Real Estate Taxes for the period ending De- 
cember 31, 1939 was 8.47% (tax years 1928-1938, 
inclusive). For the period ending October 31, 
1940 the delinquency is 10.79% (including tax 
year 1939). The percentage, 10.79%, is due to de- 
linquent 1939 tax payments. As a matter of record, 
Real Estate Tax collections have reduced the de- 
linquency from $152,000,000 to $145,000,000, or a 
reduction of over seven million dollars. We can- 
not foresee how much more will be collected in the 
last two months of this year, but we feel, that 
although the sum unpaid is very great, namely, 
$145,499,036.83, in percentage and dollars Real Es- 
tate has contributed more than its proportionate 
share to defray the cost of Governmeiit. 

The State's Attorney of Cook County is continu- 
ing his policy in forfeiture foreclosure suits with 
splendid success. The only objection that can be 
made is that not enough of these suits have been 
filed. 

The County Treasurer has established a Delin- 
quent Tax Bureau which has been generally ap- 
proved as a step in the right direction. 

Both the State 's Attorney and the County Treas- 
urer are commended by this Committee for attack- 
ing this problem in a manner which cannot fail to 
bring results. 

We suggest that the State's Attorney should 
obtain an appropriation from the Board of Cook 
County Commissioners large enough to increase 
his staff so that these forfeiture foreclosure suits 
may be multiplied at least one hundred fold. This 
law, which has been very wisely and carefully 
administered by the State's Attorney, has proven 
that most of these taxes can be collected if the 
proper legal and sensible methods are utilized. 
During the year, September, 1939 to September, 
1940, a sum in excess of six and one half million 
dollars has been collected through forfeiture fore- 
closure suits guaranteed by a minimum bid. 



There is now pending before the Board of 
County Commissioners a request from the County 
Treasurer for an appropriation to enlarge the Tax 
Delinquency Bureau which he has opened in his 
office during the past year. This request for an 
appropriation has met with the approval of the 
Tax Committee of the Chicago Association of 
Commerce, which has cooperated with the County 
Treasurer in a survey made in four townships in 
Cook County, classifying the Real Estate delin- 
quencies in these townships and using the results 
of this survey as a measuring rod for the other 
townships. This survey has not been completed 
as of this date. 

The plan follows in a general way the program 
outlined by this Committee on October 7, " 1939, 
and given in greater detail in our report of 
February 7, 1940.
